Reports (2)
  • Status is not correct "No it should not."
  • Newer law has been passed "There is no law to protect lgbt people from any other form of discrimination than in employment. The fact that discrimination cases are not reported is because gay people are afraid to face more discrimination from authorities, not because such situations don't exist."
